House Mouse Monday ~ School Time!


Happy LATE House Mouse Monday!    


Been having some Internet issues, so this post is VERY late!    But, I do have some good news to add – my oldest daughter Jennifer, who lives in Florida – had a beautiful baby girl this morning at 5:30 AM!    So, grandbaby No. 8 has joined the family!!    😀

Our challenge this week for the House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge is School Time, with a gift certificate from 7 Kids College Fund as the prize!!      I hope you can take a peek at the ADORABLE creations from the uber talented DT ~  They always amaze me with their creativity.    AND, be sure to stop at the blog to see who the lucky BIG winner is from our 2-Year Anniversary celebration!



hehe … this image always manages to make me smile.  If you look closely at the title of some of the books she’s holding, you’ll see why  ~   Public Squeaking!   LOL    

This will be a quickie post today since grandma needs a nap!    I didn’t get much sleep last night waiting for word from my daughter.   We finally heard from her at about 5:30 this morning!     Fortunately, everyone is doing well and we have a healthy 9 lb. 2 oz. new baby girl – who has yet to be named!   It was baby No. 5 for my daughter, so I imagine she’s run out of names!  LOL

Thanks for stopping by today!
